TOKIO, A u punt 2f-(Hpeclal) A
an aftcrmnth of tho rice riots which
prevailed throughout Japan recently,
the railroad linen arc feeling he bit
tcrncss of t lie people against the got
ernnient. As all the lines of the rail
road communication are government
owned, the people nre boycotting the
railroads, the train running with few
pasacn.er.
The disturbances throughout the Etn
pirn, which were attributed to the rice
fnmine, have now been completely sup
pressed by the government.
The prcfectiiral governors of Osaka,
Kobe, Naijnyn and several other asked
the Minister of Interior R. Mlr.uno,
whether they must present their reaig
lintioiiB for not preventing the disturb
aneeii.
The relief policy nt the government
regnrding the rice situation, is chiefly
aimed to aid the poor, while the mid
die class of people arc given little
consideration. These are warning the
government thnt this policy will bring
serious consequences which will b
more dangerous to the nation's prog
ress and prosperity thnn were mob dis
tnrbances.
The Kmpress today ate foreign rice
imported by the government from
Korea for 'the purpose of increasing'
the rice supplies at hand. This is the
first time in the history of Japan that
the royal family of Nippon has ever
eatcu foreign rice.

Under the government's new policies
the labor bureau head in each state
made a census of men available and
each state was given a quota to be

MUST THINK IN MILLIONS
TO MEET DEMANDS AFTER
WAR SHIPPING EXPANSION
9-
, , o
For Greater Honolulu Harbor
lo meet the demands of H9t-wat shipping expansion, the
peuplcnf Hawaii must think in millions of dollars, says George
1. Pcnison.
I lie time for figuring on puhlic improvements in thou
sands is past.
Construction of Honolulu. Palama ship canal will provide
wharf space for ocean pvitiR vessels as its dredging progresses.
Canal dredging will build tip the entire 'area of exposed
reef and all tide lands between Honolulu harbor and Palama
basin.
Belt lines of electric and steam railroads are considered
necessary to connect up entire expanded system of old and
new waterfronts.
Sand Island would make an admirable, naturally protect
ed, site for the development of "free xrt" facilities.
Standard Oil may decide to build wharf facilities on lands
it has obtained from the O. R. & L. Co.
( ahu Kailroad has not decided on further expansion of its
shipping facilities, but will do its share as demand for them
.Is apparent.
Logical plan is to prepare Palama basin for earliest devel
opment for shipping promised by J. H. Kossctcr, of the Emer
gency Fleet Corporation.
Inter-Island company has not reached the end of its con
templated improvements to furnish repairing, coaling and
drydocking facilities.
COILING TO RUN
FOR THE SENATE! BOARDS TO BE PAID
Unless the people of the Hawaiian
Islands cense to think of improvements
in thousand of dolls rs and begin to
think in millions, Honolulu will not
reap the benefit of the American and
world shipping expansion following the
close of the war, is the opinion of
Ueorse Oenisou, general manager of
the Oahu Bailrond Company and chair
man of the maritime affairs committee
of the chamber of commerce.
Mr. Denison, who is in charge of
the collection of duta relative to the
harbor's present facilities and determ
ining how and where and at what cost
these fncilities can be expanded and
developed to care for an increase of
unknown percentage in ship tonnage,
says that the time has come when the
proposed dredging of Kalihi ship can
al, the dredging and opening up of
1'ainma basiu, construction of new
anil huge wharves, must be given an
intelligent study by citizens nlso, un
less the legislators study problems of
finance In Tnrge figures, Honolulu will
be unable to participate in the ex
pansion program of the Washington
administration, and will be u financial
ami commercial loser.
The maritimo affairs committee,
while it has already collected a largo
amount of data, and 'is ohtnlning much
more through Governor McCarthy, the
' -- eomro'iion. the Inter Island
Company, and expects considerable
lio... i.u anny engineer department,
has not reached the stage where it
can produce a constructive program.
To reach a definite conclusion the
committee will cull a general meeting
of business men and interests for some
time next week, when constructive da
ta will be asked for, to aid the com
mittee in shnpiug its report to be for
warded to .1. II. Kossctcr of the Kmcr
gency Heel' Corporation.
Bosserter's Statu Uncertain
KxHctly what is the present stntus
on the shipping board of .1. II. Kosset
er and what hw status is to lie is a
mutter of considerable interest mid
some inquiry in Honolulu in view of
the recent letters that have come from
him in regard to harbor expiinsion for
the nftcr war trade. Other corres
poiidcucc indicates that there have
been changes made ami that Mr. Kos
setcr muy not become director of opcT
ations us it hud been expected that hit
would be.
I'util recently it hud been understood
that Mr. Kossctcr would go to Wash
i n t o n and ou the llflecutli of next
month would become director of oper
ations of the shipping board. Itii-ent
ly it was learned that C. W. Cook, who
has been assistant director of opera
tions on the I'ucific Coast, has gone
to the. capital and has assumed the
duties that it had beeu expected would
fall to Mr. Kossctcr.
J. It. Hunify has been director of
operations at Washington. He was
wanted for other duties and the infor
mation reaching hero was that he
would be succeeded by J. H. Kosseter
on Noiitoiuber 15. The surmise is that
Mr. llauify hud to leave sonoer and
that this was the reason Mr. Cook
went to Washington. A cable has beeu
sent to learn just what the situation
is but up to yesterday afternoon no
reply bad been received.
News of the changes gave rise to a
rumor that Mr. Itossetcr was, or would
be, out of the shipping board but those
best in formed here, believe that this
is not the case. They think, from
the tenor of letters recently received,
that he will assume other duties re
lating more closely to harbors and har
bor facilities than to ships and their
mov emeiits.
On the other hand it is considered
possible that the appointment of C. W.
Cook as director of affairs was merely
a temporary one and to be effective
ned out at this end,'' said Mr. Denison,
may be able to leave the 1'ucitic
Coast.
Honolulu Must Prepare
The entire work of the maritime
committee is being carried on because
of a rcipicst, almost umuuutiug to a
demand, from Mr. Kosseter, that Ho
iiolulu harbor be set 111 shape for the
promised commerce expansion follow
ing the war.
"Kven though the suggestions of
Mr. Ilosseler could not entirely be enr
ried out at this end," said Mr. Denison,
"I believe the community has been
sufficiently aroused to awake to th
opportunities, ahead of us, and, that
1
much of the progrant proposed will
eventually be carried through.
Mr. Denison Is firmly of the opinion
that a ' dollar a-year man serving the
administration will cut red tape at
every opportunity, and, being assigned
to B herculean task of finding a use
for the great war fleet in times of
peace, he will find the funda necessary
to rreat this harbor development. For
that reason he is optimistic and urges
all business interests, and all citizens,
to swing in behind this movement and
begin to think in terms of "real mil
lions". Honolulu harbor cannot be expand
ed to provide more wharves, he says.
There art but a few small strips "of
land on its shores that can be util-J
neil. , . ,.
The reaf; development , the duplica
tion of Honolulu facilities, musC go
elsewhere. The Kalihi ship canal
with a thousand foot width, will give
space for ships to moor alongside. As
tho ship canal is being dredged and
wharves built along Its borders, whsrf
spare will be provided in units which
will meet part of the expansion.
Time Is Important Factor
Time is dne of the most inijiortaut
factors in any program that may be
recommended from here. The dredg
ing of I'carl Harbor channel took
more than three years' time. Kalihi
canal is about 0000 feet long. It !
will have to be dredged through heavy
coral, and will retou ire considerable
time. A year's worV'should finish the
canal.
The war may be over in a year. TV
lays in commencing work on the
canal will leave the project incomplete
arid with war concluded and the new
fleets, turned into peaceful commerce
lanes, wonld find Honolulu's harbor
facilities far below the demands that
will be placed upon them, comments
Mr. Denison.
The report on Kalihi ship canal
and the use Of Palama Basin prepared
by L. A. Thurston a few years ago
and sent to Washington, where it re
reived the endorsement of the army
engineer department, will be brought
up In date aud will from an I in port a tit
Hrt of the new idea being prepared for
the use of Mr. Hoaseter.
"In the past when statements have
gone forward from Honolulu to Wash
ington," said Mtt Denison, "they were
intended to couvluce the authorities
there that we wauted something that
we were entitled to and hoped they
would act favorably.
"In the present instance we do not
have to convince Mr. Kosseter. lie is
convinced of what we need and asks
us to provide data that ran be develop
ed in to Vila king a greater harbor. He
wants tu help us. He wants to know
where we can put these facilities.
" M,v own opinion is that these addi
tional facilities lie entirely in the ship
canal and in I'alawa Basin.
"The oil storage tanks will then
be half way between and cau easily
supply all wharves.
"There is a splendid opportunity
for the Knpid Transit to extend its
lines to give belt line facilities for
the entile new paterfront. There has
also been a prOfiosarfor the O. K. & I..
to extend its linos similarly.
"'My own idea' of 'What should hap
pen before attempting to put up a
rniirrete plan is to got public opinion
and information from anybody who
may be qualified to offer recommends
tions.
The Logical Direction
"Lrcanuot say just what the coin
uiittee will do, but I am thoroughly i "ii
v lured we must lean toward l'alainii
and Kalihi basins. It is the only logi
cul direitiuu.
"The dredgiogs will be of immense
value in covering the reef's ou both
sides and building up the tide lauds
into really valuable waterfront lauds.
Announces His Candidacy For
Republican Nomi
nation D. I, Conkling, city treasurer, Is a
candidnte for tin- Republican nomina
tion for territorial senator. He an
nounced liix candidacy yesterday, and
immediately there was a great running
to and fro among the Democrats, who
emitted shrieks of mingled joy ami
rage. .lov berause thev jumped to the
erroneous conclusion that: Conkllng
would have to resign as cify treasurer
in order to enter the race; thereby
leaving one more job open to be filled
by one of the "deserving;" rage lie
cause they recognised in Conk ling's
candidacy the dashing of their hopes in
pushing another Democrat into tho up
per house of the legislature.
Judging by his past performances,
Conkling is a sure winner, for he is
one of the strongest vote getters in the
citv. He hns a big following among
both haoles and llawniians. Ho dem
onstrated his political strength four
years ago when he was nominated for
city treasurer while he was on the main
laud selling territorial bonds and could
not uinke nnv campaign in his own be
half. Ho has been elected twice with
out having had to exert himself, and
there is little doubt but that, since he
wants to go to the senate now, he can
do so without trouble.
WiU Work For City
Conkling 'a reason for running for the
senate is to give him a better oppor
tunity, he says, to work for tho in
terests of the City and County of Ho
nolulu. He hns made a faithful and
conscientious public servant, both in
his present position and previously
when he was territorial treasurer, ami
it may be assumed that he will be no
less faithful and efficient as a member
of the law making body.
Conkling is a former newspaper man,
having been nt various times connected
with The Advertiser. His candidacy
mnkes two reformed newspaper men
who have uspirations for seats in the
legislature. The other is Kbert J.
Botts, also a former Advertiser report
er, who hns announced that he will run
for the house. Mr. Botts is practising
law nt preseut. He has many friends
In the city and his candidacy is regard
ed as an indication that Honolulu is
beginning to get away from the riff
raff in politics and that men of sense,
ubility and political honesty are will
ing to work for the betterment of con
ditions in the community.
Others In Race
Besides Conkling, there are four Re
publicans who will enta-r the sena
torial race, and one other is consider
ing doing so. The latter is John
Hughes, who has not ipiitc mnde up
his mind but will run if circumstances
permit. The others are Umil Peters,
James A. Rath, John Wise uinl Charles
Chillingworth, the latter being uow
president of the senate.
The Democrats have three candidates
who are thus far out In the open K.
II. Trent, Joliu II. Wilson ami Wade
Warren Thayer, the hitter's candidacy
being announced yesterday.

of the registrants and it was found that
Hevinu should be raise. I to the "fight

travel permit automat ir.i il v expired ami
became null and void. A few weeks
ago Mr. Ilcyum asked for a permit to
go to the Fur Kast but this was denied
for "military reasons'' as announced
at the draft office.
Sand Island to my mind, furnishes an
admirable site, well pmteili'd aud apart
from our regular shipping I'm ilities.
" The Oahu rnilroad diicrtors have
dev -eloped no plans for expansion. We
have u small frontage untouuhcil with
shipping facilities. Our company will
do its sliiue in all tlii.-s expansion, I am
sure.

superintendent. We know what they
have done and what they are doing
aud I understand they contemplate even
greater things to care for shipping

They have two coaling plants and two
drydocks. Tint Territory must keep puce

"Tiers N, 9 and 111 are practically

Men Who Heretofore Have Work
ed Hard For Nothing Will Get
Compensation For Services
The chairmnn ami members of all the
local draft boards in the Territorv of
Hawaii are to receive rompensn f ion
for their services, bnsed on the nuin
bcr of registrants within the jiuisdic
tion of each board, ariording to i i
dio instructions received vesterdav l-v
Capt. II. Gooding Field, selective dlillt

For more than a year the mcmbcis
of the boards have been vohiiitr. is. :,p
pointed to their positions by' the I'ics
Idcnt following recommendations mad.
to the provost marshal general l.y tic
Governor and draft officer. The mem
bers have worked hnrd and consistent

devoting nights as well as davs to the
work. The work has been trying ami
not unmixed with criticisms, which tin
board members have received in silen. e
as s rule, although much of the rut
icism was unjustified.
Have Worked Hard
They have conducted the registrn
tions of eligibles for military service,
established oflices and staffs; classified
the registrants and reclassified manv
of these over again; have worked upon
official papers nt their homes in order
to save and gain time; given up Sun
days and nights in order to do the
public's business, but as it was nil for
Vncle Sam and in the interest of "sm
the war", their time and services wnr
given cheerfully.
Genernl Crowder, in a message to
Captain Field, says:
"You may announce to all local
boards that the following pin n of com
peusation to local boards lias been
adopted and that regulations nnd in
